EPA Draft Method 1621 represents a shift in thinking in how we screen for PFAS and other fluorinated compounds in the environment, giving a better picture of the full scope of contamination. The method uses combustion ion chromatography (CIC) to determine adsorbable organic fluorine (AOF) in water samples, a non-targeted sum parameter defined by the method itself.

In this webinar, Amelia Paolantonio, from Enthalpy Analytical, will show attendees how she was able to successfully implement this method in her lab. Webinar participants will gain valuable insights into best practices for the method and things to watch out for, such as the importance of cleanliness. Dr. Jay Gandhi, from Metrohm USA, will discuss how to execute a total solution for your fluorine analysis to help you comply with Draft Method 1621.
